Consider logic. As we saw, logical theory of meaning led Husserlinto the theory of intentionality, the heart of phenomenology. On oneaccount, phenomenology explicates the intentional or semantic force ofideal meanings, and propositional meanings are central to logicaltheory. But logical structure is expressed in language, either ordinarylanguage or symbolic languages like those of predicate logic ormathematics or computer systems. It remains an important issue ofdebate where and whether language shapes specific forms of experience(thought, perception, emotion) and their content or meaning. So thereis an important (if disputed) relation between phenomenology andlogico-linguistic theory, especially philosophical logic and philosophyof language (as opposed to mathematical logic per se).
